DEAR CUSTOMERS,

THE SILVER COIN “150th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BIRTH OF IVANA BRLIĆ-MAŽURANIĆ” WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE FROM APRIL 22nd!

 

The Croatian National Bank in collaboration with the Croatian Mint has issued the silver collector coin “150th Anniversary of the Birth of Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić”. This one-ounce (31.103 grams) silver coin, in the 4 euro denomination, is issued in a series of 1,500 pieces. The coin comes in a box with a certificate signed by the Governor of the Croatian National Bank and represents an ideal gift for special occasions.

The world of fairy tales would be a less imaginative place if Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić, an exceptional Croatian writer, had not left her mark on it. Her fairy tales have marked generations, not only in Croatia but also worldwide. Gifted in many ways, especially in foreign languages, she began writing poetry, essays, and journals at a very young age. She captured the literary audience’s attention in 1913 with the novel “Čudnovate zgode šegrta Hlapića” (“The Wonderful Adventures of Hlapich”), and her most famous work, the collection of folk tales “Priče iz davnine” (“Tales from Long Ago”), was published in 1916. Today, it represents the crown jewel of Croatian children’s literature.

The Croatian academic sculptor Kuzma Kovačić, known for his conceptual designs of Croatian kuna and lipa coins, endeavored to capture a piece of the magic of her unforgettable work on numismatic coins. With great respect for the writer, he created a portrait of Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić in his distinctive lyrical style, faithfully reflecting the spirit of her works. On the reverse side of the coin is a symbolic scene from her fairy tales “Tales from Long Ago,” with a large tree in the forest under which stands a mythical character, one of the many characters from her stories.
